We are safe. We had the top of one of our oaks crack off and hit the porch, a cedar shred in half, and the power was out for 16 hours. We are safe and I am grateful. We spent the evening reading and listening to the howling wind. In the morning, we cracked out the camp stove and made breakfast on the porch.
Being from California, storms aren't in our repertoire of common occurrences. They are just plain scary. We are under a flash flood warning now until 7PM and our low water bridge often floods, leaving us stranded on our little Ozark hill. Still, we are safe and I am grateful.
